In Which the Princess Learns Something New

I think my New Year’s Resolution for 2010 will be “Learn New Things.” So far I’ve started basic Romanian (or what Gypsy lets us overhear in the kitchen), researched the sexes of mosquitoes, and my new word for the day today: tessellated.

From Wikipedia: A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible. Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M. C. Escher. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to modern art.

“Tessellated” is a good ajective to use when…say…describing the scales of dragons. I was intrigued by this word. I still am. I urge you to use it three times today and make it your own.

On a phonetically similar yet unrelated topic. You would have enjoyed watching Miriam pout yesterday about John saying she couldn't have a Tesla Coil. John said "No, honey, I told you that you could have a Tesla Coil under the following conditions...it's in a detached garage at least 15 feet from the house and there is a 7 foot tall 3 foot thick burm between the house and the garage." His reasoning that that Miriam didn't want a Tesla coil for the sake of having one...but for the cool way they explode when you overload them.
